DRAFT

This document assumes that you have a working build environment, or use a diskbased alpine installation.

The APKBIULDs

The abuild script reads the APKBUILD and executes the steps needed to create a package.

The aports tree

The aports tree is a directory tree with many APKBUILDs. Those files are used when building alpine from source.

Installing and configuring the alpine-sdk

The alpine-sdk is a metapackage that pulls in the most essinsial packages used to build new packages. To install those packages:

apk add alpine-sdk

The aports tree is in git so before we can clone the aports tree we need to install and configure git. We need to tell git our name and email.

git config --global user.name "Your Full Name"
git config --global user.email "your@email.address"

Now we can clone the aports tree.

git clone git://dev.alpinelinux.org/aports
